Inspector Harry Hole has fled Norway to recover from a horrifying serial murder case in the seamy side of Hong Kong but he returns to Oslo to investigate the murder of two women. He doesn’t deal well with authority, he doesn’t relate well to others, and he’s the best serial murder investigator in Oslo. This case leads him from a remote hostel in the countryside where snow can obliterate all landmarks to an arms dealer in Africa that traffics in horrifying weapons. The pace is brisk, the translation is seamless and the ride is a roller coaster. This is not just another Scandinavian mystery, this is an exciting read.
